4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 30 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have now left my partner with undiagnosed aspergers as I found the personal price for my son and I much too high. I found this book very helpful in making sense of the past 13 hellish years and my issues and anger I have felt towards my ex.

I have awarded 4 stars as I thought there should have been more examples to highlight each behaviour of someone with AS other than that excellent.
